Griffiths Quantum Mechanics, 2^{nd}edition:

Calculate the eigenvalues and eigenspinors of S_{y}

2. Relevant equations

See attached PDF. Everything is in the PDF.

3. The attempt at a solution

See attached PDF. All of my steps are written out. I promise.

Parts 1, 2, and 3 are all in the attached PDF, I promise. I wrote out all of the steps in my work, so you can follow along. I am wondering where I made a math error in calculating the eigenspinors of S_{y}. I have some questions about b and c, and my work is shown for those parts as well. Hopefully someone can help.

I'm really sorry I couldn't write all of my math in this message board. I tried at first, but I couldn't get the matrices to work. So I wrote everything in my latex editor, and the result is the attached PDF.

Thanks.
